David Fizdale praised the leadership ability of Marcus Morris, saying that Morris never points fingers and is always the first to own up to mistakes. 

"His leadership has been unbelievable. I just didn't know that about him going into it. I knew he was a tough guy, and I knew he could play. The way he's been leading has just been really unbelievable. One of the better leaders I've been around in this game. The way he approaches the guys, the way he never goes off on the guys, he just always kind of calls it for what it is. He never does it where he's pointing fingers. He always owns it first and then tries to make sure he's leading the group," said Fizdale.

Morris, who signed a one-year deal with the Knicks in the offseason, is averaging 13.6 points and 4.6 rebounds on the season.
